Library readers’ records seized in Scottsdale, AZ

Topic: 

The East Valley Tribune Reports The U.S. Department of Justice used court orders three times in early 2004 to obtain documents from the Scottsdale Public Library containing reader account information, according to records released by the city.The federal grand jury subpoenas arrived during March and April of last year. Records provided to the Tribune do not detail exactly what documents federal investigators obtained, making it impossible to determine how many people were targeted in the probe and what information was sought. The U.S. Attorney’s Office did not use the Patriot Act in the subpoenas presented to Scottsdale’s library, records show.

They were probably bad people, and did SOMETHING bad, I'm sure.

I'm glad I've not checked anything out from that library since they asked for my SSN to put on the library card....-- Ender, Duke_of_URL
